We visited the Corning Museum of Glass in July 2015. We arrived early and found very convenient parking on the exit-side of the Museum, and had the privilege of walking through the nearly empty - but HUGE - gift shop and lobby to find the ticket counter. The ticketing associates were polite and helpful, though they seemed to assume that... More

This museum is 4 hours from New York city, in the middle of nowhere, but it's worth the trip. I suggest to stop here while traveling for Niagara falls. The museum is really huge and has something for you, no matter what is your style of visit. - The best is to stop to glass demonstration. There are 3 artistic... More

This has been on our 'must do' list for many years and it was well worth the wait - this really is a destination which justifies a journey!

This is a wonderful museum for people of all ages. It is filled with displays on the story of glass, many hands-on areas, demonstrations of glass blowing (which our grandchildren were fascinated by), an entire section on hundreds of pieces of antique glass and an area where children can make their own piece of glass. We all loved it.

We've been to the museum several times and there's always something new to see. This was our first visit since the new wing opened and it is now my favorite part. If you've never been there before you will be surprised at how much there is to learn about glass making. They have several demonstrations that happen throughout the day... More

My wife and I attended the museum in January when temperatures were in the teens. We were among a handful of visitors there. The glassblowing demonstration was in an auditorium that seated approximately 500 people. There were only 6 people present for the demonstration. We sat on the front row and left with an appreciation of the art of glassblowing.... More
